Subject: RE: BS: Norway Leads The Way
To ask people if they "believe in a God" is like asking them to pick up their last thought, carry it across the room, weigh it, and tie a piece of string around it.

There's no point in even answering such a question, if you intend to give it any serious thought before you answer. If you just want to deal in your instant, superficial reactions to conventional mental symbols and familiar words, however, you can of course then answer it...but that doesn't mean your answer will really mean much. It will just indicate your individual reaction to a vague and common symbol of something most people don't think about much.

It's like asking a person if Coke is "the real thing"! :) It is if you think it is. It isn't if you don't.
